Subject: R-beta: default paper size

After some paper clipping problems I checked options() and saw that the
default paper size was a4; I need US Letter.  So as per instructions I
uncommented the R_PAPERSIZE line in config.site,
R_PAPERSIZE=letter

Restarting R, everything is still the same though.  I guess I have to
reinstall?
That seems awkward.  Is there a way a prompt ("a4 or letter paper?") can
be inserted in the normal install procedure? Or at least explain in
INSTALL that this change to config.site needs to be done prior to
installing.

Thanks for any help.
